Handmade jewellery & cross stitch patterns inspired by history, nature & science

I am very sad to announce that I have to suspend sales outside the UK, for the time being. This is due to the customs fees which will now be charged, post-Brexit. I very much hope that I will be able to send orders overseas again, at some point in the future. Sincerely, Helen Historiana.
